In the headlines:

  • Sprout, the pharmaceutical company working on bringing “female viagra” to the market has raised another $50 million for the drug, bringing the total raised to $100 million.  Seems like both men and women are interested in this one!
  • Darius Rucker will perform at the 33rd annual Warner Robins Independence Day Celebration at Robins Air Force Base on July 3
  • The Metro Atlanta Chamber has announced its Business Person of the Year awards for 2015.   We have the list of winners including one guest of The Dana Barrett Show!
  • The restaurant app Dash is launching in Atlanta.  It’s a mobile payment app for restaurants.  So far, 30 restaurants have signed up, including popular eateries from Buckhead Life Restaurant Group and Concentrics Restaurants, as well as Rays on the River and Front Page News. Split, which is an Atlanta based start-up in the same space has also launched.  Good idea for service?  Or bad?
